Sweet egg custard with berry compote

Today I made a sweet dish using the egg coddlers again.

Simply beat 3 egg yolks with 2 tablespoons sugar, add 200 ml milk and 100 ml cream and a pinch of vanilla pod seeds.
Fill in two buttered coddlers and steam boil for about 12 minutes. And here it is the point of no return: Two long and you may have some scrambled egg desaster, too short you have sauce. There is no helping, but watch the whole process carefully and pray. Let the custard cool down in the fridge.

For berry compote:
300 g mixed frozen berries (black and red currants, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, acid cherries)
Fill frozen berris in a pot and add 3-4 tablespoons sugar and a 3 cm piece split opened vanilla pod. Let cook until berries are soft - this will be done quickly. Take 1 tablespoon arrow root starch and stir the starch with a little water, add this to the berries and boil it up while stiring until bubbling and juice becomes clear - this will result in a very glossy compote. Let cool down.

Place custard (pudding) on the berry compote. Or spoon it from the molds if too soft.

Japanese purin (custard pudding)! (laugh)

The berry compote looks delicious! Sadly, frozen berries are overly expensive over here.
